Immerse yourself in the modern aesthetic with these contemporary and elegant design selections by Gargi Joglekar, lead designer and owner of Tampa-based Modern Design Homes. These unique home design selections convey energy and warmth with a tad of whimsy, reflecting personality and style.
The Axis Pivot Linear Chandelier with a Novel Brass finish provides modern linear suspension lighting. From Hammerton Studio, this sleek chandelier pairs metalwork with thick artisan-cast glass. “What captivates me about these fixtures is their ability to deliver unexpected ambient lighting at each extremity,” explains Joglekar. “Coupled with the downlights that ensure an abundance of task-oriented illumination.”

“Frequently, I procure modern furniture and decor items; however, I also find delight in incorporating a transitional aesthetic to introduce variety and prevent the sharp, clean lines from becoming monotonous,” observes Joglekar. The Bridgeway Four Poster Bed from Serena & Lily elegantly ascends from its turned legs and classic molding.

For a textural and versatile piece that looks and feels authentically antiqued, the Zari Rug-Zari by Four Hands in the color “Zari Rust” is a jaunty selection. This jute-blend area rug is power-loomed in Egypt from a high-quality scan of a vintage rug. “This rug is perfect to elevate any space in the home,” contends Joglekar. “I love the color palette and how it can fit any design style.”
